Jakarta undergoes a smart city transformation

Embracing connected technology

Connected lighting joins an existing smart city platform


The lighting project, a significant milestone in Jakarta’s ongoing transformation into a smart city, involved upgrading nearly 90,000 street luminaires with energy efficient LED lights connected to a Philips CityTouch lighting management system. Completed in just seven months, with approximately 430 light points connected each day, this is the world’s fastest street lighting retrofit and remote management project undertaken to date.

Each light point is connected and performance data sent through eisting cellular networks to the city's lighting office or operator. The data will enable city officials to efficiently monitor the city's lighting infrastructure and illumination levels to match the needs of each district.

Helsinki pilots smart city parking


The smart parking pilot explores new applications for connected technology. This pilot builds on a connected lighting infrastructure by using sensors embedded in the light poles and cameras to monitor parking availability. Monitored data is sent to a central server and pushed to platforms that can be used by 3rd party applications and services. Continuous tracking helps identify available spaces and parking bottlenecks.

Los Angeles


"There is a lot more that can be achieved using the street lighting infrastructure, in addition to providing lighting for the citizens.” Ed Ebrahimian, Director, Bureau of Street Lighting, City of Los Angeles.

Philips Lighting created a pilot program that uses an open systems approach to leverage the city’s connected street lighting infrastructure:

San Francisco


In 2011, the non-profit arts organization, ILLUMINATE, collaborated with the California Department of Transportation, and artist Leo Villareal to create a stunning display of light on the San Francisco -Oakland Bay Bridge. Unveiled in 2013 and originally intended as a short-term installation, The Bay Lights became a global attraction. Before going live, it was dubbed by Hemispheres magazine as “the number one thing to see in the world during 2013.”

Los Angeles

 

With more than half of its street lights already converted to LED, the city of Los Angeles connects 110,000 light points using Philips CityTouch and connector nodes with plug-and-play activation. With its new lighting management system, Los Angeles is a on its way to becoming a smart city.
